Editorial - Saturday, July 4: Money making savings

THE quickest way to make a buck is to save a buck, according to those with plenty of money.

That's what they say anyway.

With the cost of living continually on the rise, there is no doubt readers en masse are looking at ways to ease the strain on the family budget.

Each week in The Advocate our resident financial gurus, Paul Clitheroe, Noel Whittaker and Shane Gourley deliver sound financial advice to secure a comfortable and sound long-term financial footing.

Accordingly, there is never a better time than the start of the financial year to reset the family budget and find ways to save a dollar.

With this in mind, we have zeroed in on the typical household budget investigating ways to save.

Fittingly we have called it Costbusters starting Wednesday.

Over the next eight weeks we'll share the many tricks across Australia and within our own community to reel in unnecessary costs.

Of course we'd like to extend the forum to readers to find out your special tricks when it comes to power bills, shopping, internet and mobile accounts, expenditures, fuel costs etc.

Keep an eye out on the papers, online and on Facebook as we start the discussion.
